Big Brother star still ‘riddled with guilt’ over believing Roxanne Pallett

Celebrity Big Brother housemates were divided in 2018 when Roxanne Pallett accused Ryan Thomas of punching her.

Housemates didn't know who to believe having not seen the incident themselves, but upon reflection, one housemate feels particularly bad. Speaking exclusively to Daily Star ahead of the release of her brand new podcast That's Afterlife with Sally Morgan, Ben Jardine's fellow housemate has said he regrets his alliance.

Sally said: "Ben is so lovely. I think he feels so bad because he believed her. He can't get over how he believed her.

"He feels so bad, oh my God he's just riddled with guilt, Ben. He really is a lovely guy."

Sally admitted that despite Ben initially believing Roxanne, the castmates of that series all became incredibly good friends afterwards. She said: "I see Nick [Leeson] in Ireland and his wife, I see Ryan! Dan [Osborne], and Ben. They all come to my events, and if I have a personal party, they come."

The group from the 2018 series became particularly close after challenging events while they were in the house. The stint proved to be a challenge, particularly after Roxanne accused Ryan of punching her, but he soon discovered that the viewers knew the truth, and that he hadn't.

Although Big Brother had a lot of backlash over the duty of care during that period, Sally said the bosses were very thorough when it came to mental health. She said: "There are bits they don't show you like when they talk to you. You know they're a human being behind there, even though it's 'Big Brother'.

"You can really open up to them, and you know it's not going to come out. They do look after you. There was one time where I wasn't very well and I didn't say anything, but they know because they've been watching. They made me spend the day in bed."

Sally is a big advocate of the series and declared she's thrilled it's finally able to return after five years away – and she's adamant Celebrity Big Brother will be back too.

She's been very busy since her stint on CBB, with a new book and most recently, a podcast titled That's Afterlife with Sally Morgan. The podcast will feature celebrities and she won't know who until they join her on the show.

That's Afterlife! with Sally Morgan is available now.
